Love parade

Ever wondered what Eddie Chacon of Charles & Eddie fame did after 'Would I Lie To You'? (Well, 15 years after, to be precise.) He recorded an album of sleazy electro-pop inspired by Roxy Music, The Velvet Underground, Roman Polanski and "retro German porn" with someone called Sissy he met "on a late night chat line". The lyrics to 'WWIII' are particularly worth hearing...

Ever wondered what Bon Scott did before fronting hard rock titans AC/DC? He sung and danced very badly in a late 60s teen-pop combo from Perth, Australia, who were one of countless bands to cover The Temptations' 'Build Me Up Buttercup'.

The name of both outfits? The Valentines.
